Presenting a joint podcast production with Peter from The Daily Rios podcast (where you can also listen and subscribe to The Legion Project), where we will discuss, issue by issue, the 1984 Legion of Super-Heroes (volume 3) series affectionately known as the “Baxter run”.

In this episode we discuss Legion of Super-Heroes #24: “Suspicion” and (the backup tale) “Togetherness”. The Legion’s suspicion about Sensor Girl finally reaches a tipping point, Mentalla disappears from the Legion Academy, Emerald Empress recruits a new member for the Fatal Five, and Lightning Lass and Timber Wolf have a heart to heart. Plus, listener feedback, Who’s Who entries, Legion tech in Booster Gold #6, and more!

I just bought these issues (for a $1 each!) at Captain Comics in Boise, ID. At such a great price, and the hype surrounding this series over the years, I couldn’t pass this collection over. I hope it’s as good as I hear. Have you read this series? What did you think?
